One of a kind...

Hi all you Sunday bloggers and the first of 2 scheduled posts today. This is the first week of the brand spanking new Dream Valley Challenges and my DT card for them. This weeks theme is "anything goes" just to make it easy for the first week. Why don't you pop over and see what the rest of the team have created. The lovely Melly is sponsoring this weeks challenge, so a little treat for one lucky winner, well actually she is giving away 3 prizes.

1st prize is...




2nd prize is ....


3rd prize is...

What fabby prizes so you don't want to miss out....

I have made this card quite plain really but sometimes less is more as they say. I have used Basic Grey - Marjolaine papers, I embossed a couple of panels and layered the Sugar Nellie Bumble Bee image onto the card. I coloured the image with copics but just very lightly and then finished with some glitter and pearls. I have also entered the challenges below.

The sugar Bowl - sketch
Paperplay - sentimental(not sure if this qualifies so delete it if it doesn't)
Fussy & Fancy - embossing and/or paper piecing
Flutterby Wednesday - fairies
